Parisian museums for children
Visiting the city can be tiring for children, so it is convenient to offer different and focused activities for them. Paris offers museums with activities for children with which they can enjoy and learn.

The main jeweler of art keeps in his kilometric interior the works of Michelangelo, The Kiss, The Victory of Samothrace and the mysterious Gioconda.
